Executive Summary

The Consultancy were growing their Development team due to the record success and needed a recruitment partner that really understood their culture and skills. They used a handful of agencies that did not deliver highly skilled Developers. So when the opportunity came to find a new recruitment partner to work with Ronald James was the obvious choice.


We were struggling to find a PHP Developer to be based in Hartlepool and had been looking for almost 6 months. We tried using job boards and place adverts but the quality of applicants were poor. We then tried working with 3-4 agencies and although they sent some CV's none of them were good enough. We really needed a passionate a PHP Developer that understood Laravel frameworks.

How Ronald James Helped

Ronald James implemented their 7-Step Hiring Strategy and delivered  us 3 CV's within 48 hours from initial search.

7 Step North East Digital & Tech Hiring Strategy

They really knew the market in the North East and understood our need for a Laravel framework requirement for the PHP developer.


The Consultancy wanted to use just 1 agency so they could get a personal approach that gave them a long-term partner that truly understood both their needs and also the industry so they could attract the best talent in their business. "We chose Ronald James because I was so impressed by their expertise and passion for the North East industry"



The result we got from Ronald James was they delivered 5 CV's to us in under 7 days and we interview 4 of them. In the end, they found us a really talented PHP Developer who had Laravel experience. He also only lives 20mins from the office. All within our budget of £28,000!
